Draw Clouds From Life Tutorial

Basic drawing principles apply to everything.

Creating good contrast means drawing strong values, and values are important in all mediums.

Graphite is a great medium for learning to draw strong values because it’s easy to use and you can draw values without worrying about colors.

Those lessons can then be applied to colored pencil drawings.

And any time you draw, you improve your drawing skills. That’s always a good thing, no matter what your favorite medium may be!

So if you don’t think you can learn anything from a graphite tutorial, think again. Don’t disregard this fine medium. Grab a few pencils, a pad of paper, and your sharpener and eraser and start drawing along with Carrie!
